    No college football fan will forget Baker Mayfield leading Oklahoma to a win at Ohio State, then planting an OU flag on the Buckeyes’ field. Nick Bosa surely hasn’t forgotten. Bosa was a star at Ohio State. He was the second overall pick of the NFL draft this year by the San Francisco 49ers. And he was fantastic against the Browns and Mayfield on Monday night, when the Niners blew out the Browns, 31-3. Late in the second quarter, Bosa pressured Mayfield again, hit him and forced an incompletion. Bosa got up and did a celebration that Ohio State fans...

    It will be a day at the beach for President Trump’s re-election campaign on Labor Day. The campaign is taking to the skies on Labor Day to fly banners over beach-goers to show its thanks for workers fueling the economy. “Labor Day is the perfect time to thank American workers for everything they do for our country,” said Tim Murtaugh, Trump campaign communications director. “Under President Trump’s policies, the economy is strong and growing, and more Americans are working than ever before. The American economy is the envy of the world and our American workers are the best on the...

    The brother of Simone Biles, the Olympic gold medalist, was charged in a Cleveland triple-homicide, it was reported.

He was arrested and is now being held at the Cuyahoga County Jail. He will be arraigned on Sept. 13, the report said. “The relentless persistence of Cleveland police homicide detectives helped secure an indictment in this case,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor O’Malley said in a statement obtained by the paper. “It is through their hard work that we can begin to...

    Civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump is endorsing Kamala Harris for president, citing the California senator’s record on criminal justice and comparing her campaign to former President Barack Obama’s historic White House run in 2008.Crump, a high-profile Florida attorney, represented Trayvon Martin’s family after the teen was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in 2012. He has since represented other families whose children were killed in fatal altercations with white police officers that captured the nation’s attention, like Mike Brown Jr. in Ferguson, Mo., and 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland.  In a phone interview Monday afternoon, Crump said...

    Ten Cent Beer NightTen Cent Beer Night was a promotion held by Major League Baseball during a game against the Texas Rangers at Cleveland Stadium on Tuesday, June 4, 1974. The idea behind the promotion was to attract more fans to the game by offering 12 U.S. fl oz (354.9 ml) cups of 3.2% beer for just 10 cents each (regular price was 65 cents) with a limit of six per purchase. During the game, fans became heavily intoxicated, culminating in a riot in the ninth inning which caused the game to be forfeited due to the crowd's uncontrollable rowdiness and because the game...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — Protestors will gather in Public Square on Tuesday to rally against the “heartbeat” abortion ban signed by Gov. Mike DeWine in April. The protest is part of the #StoptheBans movement, a nationwide day of rallies advocating against efforts to undo Roe v. Wade. The Ohio law — which prohibits abortion after 6 weeks, before many women know they are pregnant — is being challenged by the ACLU and others. The law has no exceptions for rape or incest. Abortion rights opponents hope the legal challenge to the law triggers a U.S. Supreme Court battle that overturns Roe...

    For Cleveland suburbs, Shaker and Parma have little in common other than that, until recently, Democratic presidential candidates could count on their votes. But in 2016, Parma voted for Donald Trump, and Shaker didn’t. To Clevelanders, this split followed a certain logic. Shaker and Parma have long been of different tribes, though the same political party.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Plain Dealer on Monday laid off 14 newsroom employees as part of a staff reduction first announced in December. The 14, most of them reporters and all members of Local 1 of the News Guild of the Communication Workers of America, account for about a third of the unionized news-gathering staff. One additional journalist will depart later this month. The company had earlier announced plans to eliminate 29 other jobs in May by shifting its page-production work to a centralized outside system. Three of those production staffers will move to the newsroom, however, reducing the net...

  • Neuroscientists Say They've Found an Entirely New Form of Neural Communication

    sciencealert.com ^ | PETER DOCKRILL
    Scientists think they've identified a previously unknown form of neural communication that self-propagates across brain tissue, and can leap wirelessly from neurons in one section of brain tissue to another – even if they've been surgically severed. The discovery offers some radical new insights about the way neurons might be talking to one another, via a mysterious process unrelated to conventionally understood mechanisms, such as synaptic transmission, axonal transport, and gap junction connections. "We don't know yet the 'So what?' part of this discovery entirely," says neural and biomedical engineer Dominique Durand from Case Western Reserve University. "But we do...

    Is there any profession that merits the esteem that doctors have?  I don't think so. What doctors do not only requires significant brains, but requires professionalism, because patient trust is so critical.  Without that trust, how would a doctor be able to get a patient to take his or her clothes off, bend over for an exam, or accept a medical treatment with bad side effects?  Trust is what makes the whole profession work. This is why this story out of Cleveland is so chilling. Medical resident at Cleveland Clinic Lara Kollab, who published antisemitic statements on Twitter regarding her Jewish patients at the hospital, was dismissed from...
